Texans' A.J. Bouye: Unlikely to receive Texans' franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans likely won't use their franchise tag on Bouye, the Houston Chronicle reports.

After ranking in the top 10 in the NFL in terms of passes defended (16) last season, Bouye is a hot commodity as he becomes an unrestricted free agent for the first time. The only organization he's ever known, the Texans, are seemingly hamstrung by the commitments already made to others for 2017, including to fellow cornerbacks Kareem Jackson ($9 million) and Johnathan Joseph ($6.9 million). As a result, the front office likely won't allot more than $14 million in order to keep Bouye in the fold this fall. If the preceding comes to fruition, he should strike it rich on the free-agent market and become another team's No. 1 CB.

Texans' David Quessenberry: Successful fight with cancer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quessenberry (illness) had a successful fight against non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and is in the process of regaining his strength, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Quessenberry spent the 2016 season on the Texan's non-football illness list and is scheduled to be an exclusive-rights free agent in the offseason. However, it isn't clear when he's expected to return to full strength.

Texans' Derek Newton: No timetable for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newton (knee) faces an "extremely long road" to recovery, the Houston Chronicle reports. "It was a tough injury," coach Bill O'Brien said. "I don't think anybody has any idea as far as his timetable, but I know this: We'll do a good job of taking care of him. We care about Derek. I think all of us at some point in time have been in touch with him and I know he's working hard to get back. I'm not sure where he is right now. You know more about the medical part of it than I do. I just know that it was a tough injury and I know he's working hard to get back."

Last October, Newton suffered a devasting setback that involved ruptured patellar tendons in both of his knees, an injury that ended the careers of players like WR Wendell Davis and QB Gary Baxter. Newton, however, likely has a better chance of resuming his career due to advances in medical science. He's under contract through 2019 and O'Brien's words appear to be confirmation that Newton's immediate future is secure with the Texans.

Texans' Tony Washington: Spends 2016 season on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington (chest) spent the 2016 season on injured reserve.

At the conclusion of the preseason, the 2015 undrafted free agent was waived/injured before getting placed on IR one day later. An unsubstantiated report from the Houston Chronicle on Sept. 8 claimed the Texans and Washington reached an injury settlement as the result of a chest injury, but he in fact remained on injured reserve throughout the campaign. As the offseason progresses, he'll look to compete for a depth role at outside linebacker.
